With the help of countless apps, iPhones have been the perfect companion in every field and now, its your Yoga trainer as well. It is is well known that Yoga can calm your nerves and also prevent numerous lifestyle diseases. Donot let your hectic schedule keep you from this elegant cure, because Yoga Free is here to save the day!
Let me jump straight into the app. It welcomes you with a soothing purple interface with two major options – My Programs and Pose Base.
Tap on Pose Base to enter a world of Yoga wiki. It is a library of 250 Yoga poses grouped into Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Guru according to difficulty. You can also view all the poses arranged in alphabetical order. Each entry has a picture showing a model at the pose as well as written instructions about it.
Select My Programs to view an expert-made 14 minute Yoga recipe for beginners. Each pose in this ready-made recipe includes a photo of the pose, instructions, a figure showing muscle activity as well as a video of the exercise. If you are a beginner like me and have no idea which poses to choose, this will come in handy. On the other hand if you are a Yoga guru, you can create your own personalized program by adding the desired poses and setting the time period for each pose. Unfortunately, the custom made mixes shows only the photo and info but, lack muscle figures and the video tutorial.
The app also sports a built-in calendar showing your Yoga log. Everyday it records your workout with details of time and duration. You can also share these logs with buddies on Facebook or Twitter and encourage them to join the Yoga habit.
Overall, this free app is stuffed with features and the adless interface gains some respect. The major drawback I sensed is that, an active data connection is needed to use this app. I would have preferred, if the basic info and pictures get stored within the app data instead of downloading it every time. Other than this, the app gains a thumbs up and if you really love this app, you might even want to upgrade to the pro version for 99 cents. Be sure to check out this app and share what you think.
